Colombian Ambassador to the United States , helped U.S. law firm to grab land in Colombia to the U.S. company CARGILL irregularly. Hes lready he worked against the nation in jis claims before international courts.In the eventual case that Colombia will try to recover the lands of the nation accumulated irregularly by the powerful transnational CARGILL, the current Ambassador of Colombia in the United States will not be defending national interests. The reason: the multinational will remind you that he was part of the firm's lawyers, BRIGARD & URRUTIA, which recommended it to the multinational access through 17 S.A.S., subordinated to four companies created in Colombia but owned by CARGILL, the purchase of more than 26,000 hectares in the Colombian Orinoquia. For this reason, the representative Chamber Wilson Arias has elevated requests to different inspection bodies to investigate on the one hand the behavior of Francisco José Uribe Noguera, Advisor to star of the "sophisticated" firm of lawyers, and the own law firm and its remaining members, which included the current Ambassador CARLOS URRUTIA. But in addition, Arias Castillo raises a request so that the Procurator-General of the nation intervenes and declares such aquisitions illegal.Properties accumulated irregularly: The multinational CARGILL is one of the world's largest multinational food distributor. Their practices have been severely questioned on a global scale. In Colombia it operates through four companies, Colombia Ltda. Cargill, Cargill Trading Ltda. Colombia, Colombia Agro SAS (NIT. 900335836-3) and Black River Colombia SAS, this last namesake of the international investment fund subsidiary of Cargill. [[[According to press information, the horizon of this company is the purchase of 90,000 hectares in Colombia.]]]] So far, it has identified the acquisition of 20 sites that reach 26.060 hectares in the municipalities of Santa Rosalía and Cumaribo (Vichada). These transactions were carried out by the 17 SAS already mentioned between 2010 and 2012, and reached a value of $40.016.344.939.
